April is Autism Acceptance Month! During Autism Acceptance
Month, we focus on sharing positive, respectful, and accurate information about
autism and autistic people. We invite you to visit the official Autism
Acceptance Month website (https://www.autismacceptancemonth.com/)
hosted by our partners at the Autistic
Self Advocacy Network (ASAN). This website serves as a central location for
posting and sharing information about autism acceptance-themed events occurring
across the United States for the entire month.
AMCHP will update this page with information on activities in states, communities, and the national level to promote acceptance. Please be sure to check this page frequently for updates.
Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for Autism Acceptance related posts throughout the month!
The State Public Health Autism Resource Center (SPHARC), in partnership with College Steps, hosted a virtual screening of the new documentary, Autism Goes to College, for Autism Acceptance Month. The documentary features the story of five students on the spectrum who take us on campus and into their lives, offering an eye-opening look at what a growing number of neurodiverse young adults are bringing to their communities.
